We are inspired by the solid evidence that the 1000 days (from conception to the second birthday), are critical for a child’s physical and mental development. The Government of Rwanda has entered into a joint venture with Africa Improved Foods Ltd with the objective of improving the nutritional status of its population and help address malnutrition by manufacturing enhanced nutritious foods for vulnerable groups including the rural poor in Rwanda and the East Africa region.

KIGALI, Rwanda: -Africa Improved Foods (AIF) Rwanda has begun production of nutritious porridge flours to help prevent malnutrition in Rwanda through their new international standard factory located in the Kigali Special Economic Zone.

The Nootri range is a set of porridge flours made to complement the dietary needs of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, as well as older infants above six months. They have been enriched with the relevant vitamins and minerals required for the healthy growth of children. These products are produced from locally grown mixed grains of soy and maize.

At AIF, we strive to have the maximum social, economic and environmental impact on the communities in which we operate. Today, the plant provides ready market for more than 7,500 large and small-scale grain and cereal farmers across the country. We are already working with 200 farmer cooperatives and we plan to incorporate more in the next few months.
